MANHATTAN, Kan. (AP) - The Manhattan Regional Airport has finished the first phase of a passenger terminal expansion.

The Manhattan Mercury (https://bit.ly/1NADuGE ) reports that phase one began in October 2013. Passengers on the last plane coming into the airport on Monday evening will be the first people to depart their plane into the new, larger terminal space.

Airport director Peter Van Kuren said phase two construction will begin in April and be completed in the spring of 2016. Phase two will include meet-and-greet space for people to wait for arriving passengers, a restaurant and a gift shop.

The cost of both phases is about $17.06 million with the Federal Aviation Administration paying more than $13.1 million. The city is spending about $3.9 million on the project.
